Ex-PSG forward George Weah is standing to become the President of Liberia

Ex-PSG striker George Weah will today find out if he is successful in the first round of Liberia’s presidential election.

The 51 year old, who has a son who is currently in the PSG youth academy, officially announced his presidential campaign back on August 19th.

Sam Mannah, a member of Weah’s campaign team, had the following to say to Le Parisien on Weah’s chances: “He is feeling very, very good. He is very enthusiastic. Everywhere, people are telling him that they want change. In 2005, when he first stood for president, people were unsure because of his lack of experience. His time as a senator has had an important role.”
